No need to wait for iPhone 5 as Droid Bionic release date could be next month

It was reported back in April the Motorola Droid Bionic was going to be delayed for what the company said where some enhancements. More recently some of these changes have surfaced with a bigger display rumored. Now there are new rumors of the handset finally being released soon, so consumers need not wait for the iPhone 5.

According to an article on The Pop Herald a recent Verizon press release is hinting the Droid Bionic could come before July 6. This is because the carrier has extended the free 4G LTE mobile hot spotting feature until July 6, before a new software update will be made available and removes the offer.

Currently owners who own a HTC Thunderbolt, LG Revolution, or Droid Charge can use the feature to give their laptops a better connection via 4G LTE. Users will be notified of the offer ending by a text message, and will then require a subscription. Verizon are also set to expand their 4G coverage to another nineteen cites around the same time.

Verizon are rumored to be releasing a new LTE handset very soon so that could also mean the Bionic. So as the free service is ending, Verizon could release the handset and offer other free services to entice more new customers to the handset. The iPhone 5 looks to be coming in September so it makes sense the handset is released as soon as possible.

If the Motorola Droid Bionic is released in the next couple of weeks will you be getting one or wait for the iPhone 5?

My Droid screen just died last night, upgrade it’s June 29th. It is nice to see this (and hope) that it comes out on or around 4th of July weekend.


I bet Verizon and Motorola are laughing their asses off at all the convoluted speculation around the release of the Bionic.  It is long over due and if Verizon doesn’t get a dual processor 4G phone out the door soon, they will start to lose customers to AT&T and Sprint.

My best guess is that this rumor has absolutely no validity.  So the hotspots are being renewed for a bit…. so?  And if it were being released in a couple weeks, wouldn’t Motorola be boosting up the advertising?
